A Person Receiving Trigger Point InjectionsIf you’ve been suffering from back pain or tight muscles. you’re probably open to any method of pain relief.

One of the options you might not have tried is Trigger Point Injection, also known as TPI.

Here’s what you need to know about Trigger Point Injections and how they work with back pain treatment.

What Are Trigger Point Injections?

As the name suggests, Trigger Point Injections involve a chiropractic inserting a needle into the trigger point of a patient. The trigger point is the place where the patient’s muscles have tightened up and are causing pain throughout the rest of the body.

The solution that’s injected into the trigger point usually contains saline or a local anesthetic. Afterward, the patient should begin to feel relief, though a chiropractic may suggest a course of injections in order to guarantee long-term liberation.

Each injection takes only a few minutes, though if you have multiple trigger points, it may take a bit longer.

Which Injuries Can Trigger Point Injections Treat?

Trigger Point Injections have been used for neck and back pain treatment, as well as other parts of the body.

If you have a trigger point in your back that’s hurting or irritating the nearby nerves and causing other parts of your back to hurt, the Trigger Point Injection can relieve the knotting and the surrounding pain.

Are Trigger Point Injections the Back Pain Treatment You Need?

If your muscles have been having trouble relaxing, it’s highly likely a trigger point will occur. This causes pain in that area, as well as the surrounding regions.

That pain can be relieved with a Trigger Point Injection, which anesthetizes the trigger point, allowing it to relax and unknot.

Whether you need neck treatment or back treatment, Trigger Point Injections may be the solution you’re looking for.
